Personal Quotes (2)

The penetration that Hollywood achieves in Africa and Asia is huge - it's almost like surrogate immigration. Clearly, the values of America and the West are spread in particular by movies and television. I'm not sure that that's such a good thing.
Film today is more and more concentrated on the amusement park element. If a writer can attach an actor or a producer who has some clout, then you can arm yourself. Otherwise, a script simply becomes a road map to attract money and talent.
